CURRENT INSPIRATION

I am constantly inspired. No matter where I go, there’s something that intrigues me or piques my interest. Right now I’m really inspired by color and rainbows. If you’ve seen or read any of my previous posts you’d know that I’m pretty much always inspired by rainbows, but right now I am especially inspired! I think it’s because they’re so bright, vibrant and full of life. Color just makes me happy. But don’t get me wrong, I love me some black and white, but I just need a little rainbow thrown in every now and then!

Even if rainbows aren’t your thing, I hope you enjoy these photos and find something that inspires you too!

(P.S. the dress at the very bottom is made from gummy bears! Amazing, right?)

RUSTY PLUM

This has got to be one of my favorite color combinations– rust and plum! Sometimes outfit ideas just come to me in the morning and other days I’m changing my clothing upwards of five times before I head out the door. Luckily today was a good day. I threw on my rust-colored jeans and Brandy Melville tank, but it felt a little plain so I added my Urban Outfitters blazer. The rust and plum colors looked great together and this outfit quickly became one of my favorites to date.

Though I didn’t have my internship today, this outfit would be perfect because it’s equal parts dressy and casual. Once the blazer comes off, it’s just your everyday outfit!

I’ve also been getting into headbands and head wraps lately and this one from Free People is the one I wear most often! It is essentially a sheer fabric wrapped around a wire. The wire makes it easy to shape and tie so it won’t come off!! Hair accessories like this are great when you’re having a bad hair day — as I was today! It was humid outside and my hair was just going everywhere and getting all poofy. The headband helps keep everything in place and makes me look more presentable. Cheers to that!

POPPY

This color just pops — and rightfully so since this shade of orange is called poppy! Just like a field full of the namesake flowers, it’s hard to go unnoticed in this bright hue!

This outfit is from one of my favorite brands — one that I mention all too often — the Reformation. There were three colors available and my gut initially told me to get the black because that color goes with everything! But sometimes it’s necessary to step outside of your comfort zone and dare to be bold. That’s why I chose the poppy ensemble. The color is absolutely stunning in person and so different from anything else I own. While the two pieces look great together, they look equally as gorgeous when worn as separates! It’s like getting three outfits in one.

It’s also important to note that the material is very thick which makes it easy to wear without a bra and that’s always a plus!

STYLE FILE — AMAL ALAMUDDIN

What’s not to love about Mr. Clooney’s other half? British-Lebanese beauty Amal Alamuddin is quite the fashion maven and her street style is on point! She can seamlessly go from ripped jeans and a sweater to an Alexander McQueen gown. Her style seems effortless and so natural. And I have to say I admire her use of florals. She’s a girl after my own heart as the majority of her ensembles include some floral aspect, be it floral fabric or floral appliqué.

There isn’t much this woman can’t pull off. She’s done the print-on-print jumpsuit and the cropped pant with socks. No matter where she’s going or what she’s doing, she looks good doing it! She rocks it head to toe. No. Seriously! You must take a look at her shoes. (Especially the one’s in pictures 7 and 9). I can’t wait to see what Amal wears next — now that she’s Mrs. George Clooney, I’m sure we’ll be seeing lots of her.

MAGPIE

I will never stop obsessing over Reformation! All of their designs are too die for, but I have to budget myself because the prices add up quickly. But instead of getting this dress for $198, I found it on eBay for less than $80! That’s my secret — I look for clothing I love on eBay and other discount sites. I rarely pay full price and that’s how I afford all of the clothing I own.

This Magpie dress is great because while it’s completely covered in the front, the entire back is open. It’s like business in the front and party in the back. Hehe!! It shows just the right amount of skin and I also absolutely love the floral pattern. (What a surprise right?)

I’m currently eyeing up a few other Reformation items on eBay, so you may be seeing those on the blog in the near future!
